Have you checked the bin calendar recently? If not, you should do so, in lead up to Christmas.

Some households will see changes to their regular collection dates over the festive period and this is a great way to keep on top of when you will need to put your bins out.

You can take a look at the calendar here.

Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said: “It’s really simple and only takes a couple of minutes, so please remember to check the bin calendar in the run up to Christmas. You can check on your smartphone, tablet or other devices, and doing so will help to make sure you don’t miss your collection day.

“You can also stay on top of your collection days by signing up to receive our bin reminder emails that will keep you informed. If you do this, you will get an email to remind you to put your bins out the day before.”

Extra recycling

If your recycling boxes get full, you can leave any extra recyclables in solid containers next to your other recycling on your collection day and we’ll recycle the materials (leaving the containers behind for you to reuse again).

But if you do have extra recycling, please separate the materials as you usually would…for example, if you have extra plastic bottles and glass, please put the plastic in one container and the glass in a separate container.

Also, we will collect clean, flattened cardboard left by recycling containers as long as it is no larger in height or width than a standard issue blue sack.

Recycling centres

Many residents make use of our three recycling centres throughout the Christmas period, but this year – more than ever – it’s really important to plan your visit in advance so that your visit is as quick and smooth as possible.

Remember, if you visit the Brymbo facility, you will need to make an appointment beforehand. To make an appointment, please call them up on 01978 801463. Please be aware that this booking line will be closed from 4pm on December 24 until 8am on December 29.

Caddy liners

Remember, any residents who need further liners can just tie a liner to the handle of their kerbside caddy on collection day and our operatives will leave you a new roll.
